Theresa Moerman Ib


The old Leith Theatre


Invited Artist

Theresa’s practice embraces everything from text to installation, although lately she has focused on film and photography. Her work is not strictly autobiographical but embraces the personal narrative as a performance that can be constructed, deconstructed and reconstructed each time is it retold.

She is researching the history of past productions at Leith Theatre, focusing on the Japanese director Yukio Ninagawa. She hopes to combine this research with my own past in amateur theatre, before she got stage fright at 19. She is interested in exploring performance anxiety, while playing with the idea of the performance as a mask that can hide emotion from the onlooker.
